The purpose of this module is to develop interface switches and an LED so the robot can effectively detect wall collisions. Many sensors and actuators deploy LEDs, so understanding how they operate will be important to building your robot.
In this module, you will learn the fundamentals of SysTick timers and pulse width modulators (PWM), including how to measure pulse times and period with a logic analyzer and amplitude with an oscilloscope. It is important to understand the concept of PWM as we will use it to adjust power to the motors.
The integrated circuits troubleshooting guide highlights various techniques to assist with application problem-solving, debugging and datasheet measurements across all TI products. The hands-on courses aid in circuit analysis, isolate the root cause of an application non-conformance and provide detailed product level information to a TI representative. Industry experts present each topic in order to help reduce debugging time and move quickly through troubleshooting to production.
